The dentists in Cockeysville, MD, know their patients want to have better-looking smiles. This is why dentists at Padonia Dental Associates offer patients dental veneers.

More About Veneers

Veneers resurface and rejuvenate smiles. Veneers improve stained or discolored teeth, which may be a result of poor hygiene, drinking coffee and tea, smoking, chewing tobacco or even certain antibiotics containing tetracycline. Veneers also fix mishappened teeth, which include: crooked, worn or chipped teeth, irregularly shaped teeth, uneven surfaces and uneven spacing, like overcrowdedness.

Veneer Procedure

Dentists at Padonia Dental Associates in Cockeysville first examine your teeth. The dentist will then remove some enamel off the surface of your teeth. Enamel is removed so you don't feel like your teeth are protruding after your dentist adheres the veneers to the surface of the teeth. Veneers will feel smooth, even and properly aligned with the rest of your teeth. Next, a model of your teeth is made and sent to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made for you.

What are some advantages of veneers?

  • They conceal the faults mentioned above
  • Veneers last longer than fillings and have impressive color stability

How to Care for Veneers

In order to take proper care of your veneers, you need to brush twice a day and floss at least once before bed.
